Add this to your immediate TBR list. I cannot believe it took me so long to hear about this series.
Unknowingly, I've been waiting for this novel all this time. Cronin's writing style, world building, and character development is deeply immersive -- exactly what I was expecting. What I wasn't expecting, the audible gasp when it all clicked. I loved everything about this book. So much so, that words to describe it are failing to come together (plus no spoilers!). Just read it.
I hope when I retire, I am as cool as the characters in The Thursday Murder Club. Murder (a lot of murders -- but not gory), secrets (everyone has them), and wine & desserts (which should always be included).
Bonus: The sequel is already out -- The Man Who Died Twice.
Baba Yaga, family drama, and a traveling house puppet show. What more could you want?
No spoilers here! 'Hide' is disturbingly dark -- recommended to read when your County Fair is in town. The way White writes about family trauma gets progressively more heart wrenching throughout the story. But in the end, she reminds readers that you aren't alone and sometimes family can be the friends you make.
This book was just delightful. Full of magic, love, and sticking up for what you know is right. Go ahead dive in!
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you could change a regret?
What better series to read during a pandemic?! Escape to the Shire and travel to Mordor with Frodo and Sam. You won't regret this journey.
Historical fiction + female spy + mystery.

What would you do for “the one?‟
Warning: This is a trilogy. But worth the read!
For anyone who has a difficult relationship with mom. If you are looking for laugh out loud, quirky, or adventure add this book to your TBR.
Gawd this book -- an arrow straight into the heart. Zevin's writing is absolutely amazing. Sidenote: If video games aren't your thing, it's OK, the love story(ies) and nostalgia will keep you turning the pages.
Ever wonder what's it's like to work in a bookstore? Meet A. J. You'll love him
Recommended for fans of Netflix's 'Stranger Things.' Also a good place to start if reading Gaiman for the first time.
Told from a dogs POV, c’mon!
If you're looking for an original story, grab this! Be prepared, you might not be able to put it down.
Making new friends is hard. Especially when you area a T-rex!

How to read suggestion: Skip the footnotes. (Reread later).
Retelling of Romeo and Juliet plus comics books.
One of the best memoirs I have ever read.
Hands down my fav Jojo Moyes book.
Sidenote: I have also read One Plus One, Me Before You, and The Last Letter From Your Lover
This series has a little bit of everything: witches, vampires, demons, romance, time-travel, and so much more.
Trust me, I love me some time travel novels -- but this one hit me right in my heart strings. Straub's writing was heartfelt, tender, and relatable. It was like she mashed up all my adult female friends into one person and then let me watch her grow. I loved everything between Alice and her Dad and Sam -- the good, the bad, the ugly. If time travel was, ya know, real real, I feel like it would be similar to Alice's experience. Watch out backlist, I'm coming for you. (Pssst one of my favorite parts is when she's at the fancy restaurant with her bf -- high five friend.)
